Google's new quantum computer is '100 million times faster than your PC'

•, By Mark Molloy

Has Google won the race to build the world's first commercial quantum computer

The technology company's artificial intelligence lab believe they may finally have proof that their opinion-dividing quantum computer actually works. 

Google and Nasa announced they were collaborating on the D-Wave X2 quantum computer, which they say is 100 million times faster than a conventional computer chip, in 2013. It can answer certain algorithms in seconds rather than years. 

Google director of engineering, Hartmut Neven, said: "For a specific, carefully crafted proof-of-concept problem we achieve a 100-million-fold speed-up."
